Almost 75 ft long, 8 bins that hold 1.5 cords of wood each. Top covered with tin roofing material. Flooring is oak pallets.

Building it was very easy. 6 ft long ground timbers as the posts and 2x4's as the dividers and to hold the wood up in the back. The ground timbers are put into 6x6/4x4 concrete deck blocks from Menards and its all held together with 3" long wood nails:


I also have extra oak pallets in the yard for storage and two 8 ft long metal racks with covers.

Here's my new wood shed, though shed is a stretch. This is fresh cut wood ready to dry over the next 2 years. I will cover it in the fall and winter. Got feedback on the forum that in Iowa it will dry well in our hot windy summer days, uncovered.

I would think you could use any material you want. Just needs to be strong enough and have adequate airflow. I have plans to build one out of steel pallet racking.

Nice sheds thanks for sharing pics, actually i want to build a shed but i still looking for modern design ideas, i moved to Australia few months ago for working here, and i bought a big home in Melbourne but i was surprised that it doesn’t has a garage for the car or shed in backyard and i had to build them, i started with the concrete base for shed and searched in internet for shed and garage models, as a new here i didn’t know any steel and wood companies so i asked the neighbours and them told me about localshedsolutions.com.au so i ordered aluminum for the garage and wood for shed, i like your shed designs i might build like it with some modifications.

Topped up the shed today. Should be just enough to get me through a mild winter (based on my last stove... new one might be a bit more thrifty). If it's a cold one I'll pull from outdoor stacks.

I didn't get a floor poured in it like I was hoping to this summer, nor the rear lean-to to park trailers under. Decided to add batten to the boards though, as the wood gets enough air with the front and rear doors open that I don't need the siding ventilating. Also closed off the soffits with vented aluminum and got a final coat of paint on the roll up doors.
